Title: Secret Santas
Author: angelita26

WC - The Silent Language of Grief  
Title: The Silent Language of Grief
Author: angelita26
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Gen – Neal, Peter, Elizabeth, Mozzie, Diana, Jones, June, Christie
Spoilers: Up to and including about half of Judgment Day.
Warning: Presumed Dead Canon Character. A metric ton of angst.
Word Count: ~4500
Summary: Neal jumps, Mozzie plots, Peter grieves.

Notes: Fills the "grief" square on my H/C Bingo Card. This story diverges from canon during the events of Judgment Day. You can blame/thank [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13 for this – she sent me an amazing piece of art that I couldn't stop thinking about. The cover art is all hers (click it to enlarge). Also, much thanks to [livejournal.com profile] embroiderama for her help and excellent thoughts and suggestions and [livejournal.com profile] pooh_collector for her brainstorming genius.

ETA: Please check [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13's post with the original artwork that inspired this story. It's hauntingly beautiful.



Peter hadn't slept in three days. Every time he closed his eyes he saw the tram, saw the water, saw Neal fall. Every damn time. )

Meme Roundup: AUs I'll Never Write (Or Will I?)  
Wow! You all gave me such varied and interesting prompts. They were a lot of fun to research and write, and I thank each and every one of you for participating. I apologize that it took me so long to get them filled, but I was determined to get them all written.

From [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan: White Collar RPS - Tim DeKay and Ross McCall are hockey team mates. Matt Bomer is the new guy on the team.

From [livejournal.com profile] theatregirl7299: Peter and Neal are competitors in the fast paced world of the professional show dog circuit. Things come to a head at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show.

From [livejournal.com profile] embroiderama: WC RPF - Matt's the new guy in the gay men's chorus, Tim's the director.

From [livejournal.com profile] daria234: Victorian or steampunk Dark Angel?

From [livejournal.com profile] doctor_fangeek: Didn't we have a conversation in comments of another meme about how you wanted to write a White Collar vampire AU? Didn't we?? ;)

From [livejournal.com profile] pooh_collector: Peter runs a traveling carnival always on the edge of completely folding. Neal Caffrey is a maybe just legal kid who tries to sell Peter on his carnie-saving act.

From [livejournal.com profile] sinfulslasher: You know, seriously, you really finally need to write that AU with pirate!Peter and cabin boy!Neal...

From [livejournal.com profile] love_82: Mozzie runs an animal rescue and adoption agency. Elizabeth and Peter can still be an event planner and FBI agent. Mozzie hires Elizabeth to plan a fundraiser. Peter comes along to help out and meets one of the shelters most dedicated volunteers, Neal.

From [livejournal.com profile] joy2190: Peter is a speech pathologist and Neal his patient, an Afghanistan vet suffering from a PST induced stammer.

Thank you again!!

Characters: Neal/Peter/El, Diana, Jones, June, Mozzie
Spoilers: None.
Warnings: Sexswap, pregnancy, brief discussion of unrealized abortion
Word Count: ~9700
Summary: Strange things have happened to Neal in his illustrious life; none of them stranger than waking up as a woman.

Notes: This was meant to be crackfic - it isn't. There's also some scientific/medical/pregnancy handwaving necessary for the sake of the plot. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pooh_collector for beta-ing and hand-holding, [livejournal.com profile] citrinesunset for the encouragement, and chat for all their help.



When Neal woke in the early hours of the morning, sandwiched between Peter and Elizabeth, he shifted uncomfortably and wondered why his body ached and his head felt fuzzy, like it did when he had a fever.

Note: Link redirects to AO3 due to length.

Mozzie...  
I may be the last person on the bus for this one, but I just found out that "mozzie" is Australian slang for a mosquito. This amuses me to no end because Mozzie is kind of like a mosquito in some people's *cough*Peter's*cough* lives. Hehehe.

Mozzie's head shot up when the overhead light abruptly flickered to life. Neal was standing in the doorway of the library, holding a blanket and his stuffed cat and looking like a kid caught with his hand in the candy jar. )

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 10,298
Warnings: Off-screen assault and discussion thereof. Teenage AU.
Summary: Neal sneaks out one night and is assaulted by bullies from school. While he recuperates in the hospital, Peter and Mozzie take matters into their own hands.
Author's Note: 1) White Collar and the recognizable characters do not belong to me. 2) Beta credit goes to the amazing [livejournal.com profile] embroiderama, and a special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] theatregirl7299 for giving it an early read and cheerleading. 3) This story takes place in the same universe as Stand By Me but it is not necessary to read that ficlet first. All you need to know is that Neal, Peter, Mozzie, Diana and Sara are all foster children living with June and Byron in upstate NY.

Art and userpic by the very, very talented [livejournal.com profile] aragarna, who took on this very difficult project and made such amazing artwork. Click here to see the full size awesomeness.

Neal cried out when the bright light pierced his aching head and stumbled back until he fell on his ass in the middle of the floor, surrounded by the pens and paintbrushes he'd knocked off his desk. )



ETA: Please tell [livejournal.com profile] aragarna how amazing her art is. I'm so grateful she created this cover for me. :D

Peter took a deep breath as he stood in front of Neal's door, juggling a six-pack and a bottle of wine. It was after eleven at night, but tomorrow was going to be a long day. Peter wanted to grab a few minutes with Neal while they had the time. )

Word Count: ~1200
Summary: Neal and Peter and Mozzie go camping.

Notes: For  [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan, who prompted Neal and Peter and Mozzie go camping in my The AUs I'll Never Write (or Will I?) Meme.  I don't think this was what you had in mind, but it has taken on a life of its own. I hope you don't mind that I used the characters as teens.  Also, the title is for the movie Stand By Me, which inspired and influenced this piece quite a bit.

“That's the dumbest question I've ever heard,” Neal Caffrey said as he spun his marshmallow just above the campfire, letting the flames lick it to a perfect toasty brown. )

Warnings: As usual, betaed by my anal personality - all mistakes are mine.  Minor canon Peter/El smooches.
Word Count: ~3600
Summary: A man wakes in a hospital bed with no memories while an FBI team desperately searches for one of their own.

Three long and tiring days later, Neal was doing well enough that the doctor released him with the stipulation that someone needed to be available to keep an eye on him. His concussion was still giving him headaches and sometimes made him unsteady on his feet. Not to mention that the amnesia was still an issue. )

Rating: PG-13
Characters and/or Pairing: Gen - Neal, Peter, El, Mozzie, Diana, Jones, etc
Spoilers: Season 1's Front Man, Season 3's Taking Account, Vague for Season 4 (brief mention of Ellen)
Warnings: As usual, betaed by my anal personality - all mistakes are mine. Confinement in a small space. I kind of break Neal, a little bit.
Word Count: ~5500
Summary: Peter and Neal are both having very bad days.  Their only contact is via cell phone while Neal's kidnapped and imprisoned in a small, dark box, and Peter desperately searches for him.

Notes: Written in response to [livejournal.com profile] theatregirl7299's prompt at the [livejournal.com profile] whitecollarhc Prison Cell Block Party fic fest.  Complete prompt is at the end.  Also, title borrowed from the Dashboard Confessional song.

A video feed filled the screen that was tinged in green, indicating that it was a camera equipped with night vision. It was positioned so that you could see the upper body of a person lying in what looked like a coffin. The face was in profile, but it was unmistakable. “Neal,” Peter and Diana said in unison. )

WC - I Will Follow You... (Sara/Neal)  
Title: I Will Follow You...
Author: angelita26
Rating: PG-13
Characters and/or Pairing: Neal/Sara, Peter/Elizabeth, Mozzie
Spoilers: None
Warnings: As usual, betaed by my anal personality - all mistakes are mine. Medical jargon was researched, but no guarantees for accuracy. Much angst.
Word Count: ~6200
Summary: Neal and Sara's first date night after their son is born ends in a devastating accident that could forever alter their futures.

Note: Fills the Wild Card slot on my new [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card, which I'll say is Accidents. Written for the [livejournal.com profile] whitecollarhc Whump-A-Palooza prompt by [livejournal.com profile] virgo_79 : Peter gets a call from the hospital that Neal and Sara have been airlifted in; they've either been in a really bad car wreck, or they've been the victims of somebody's work catching up with them (either one has to have a list of enemies a mile long at this point.) One of them is worse off than the other, and it falls to Peter to be the one the let the first one awake know what's happening.

Note 2: This takes place in a 'verse I'm tentatively (and cornily) calling 'Where There's a Will' in which Sara is pregnant when Neal returns at the beginning of season 4, and they make a go of it. This story takes place a little over a year after Wanted/Most Wanted and my story No More Secrets.


Bright lights suddenly engulfed the inside of the car as he reached for her and she tried to turn and look. Abruptly, the whole car jerked sideways and the terrible screeching of metal giving way to metal filled the night. )
